Fear of Juvenile imprisonments and executions

Iranian human rights attorney Mohammad Mostafaei today wrote :  “I was released but remain imprisoned”آزاد شدم ولی باز اسیرم

In its latest update Amnesty International wrote: “Mostafaei is accused of “conspiring against state security” and “propaganda against the system”. He is likely to face prosecution and if imprisoned he would be a prisoner of conscience, detained solely for his human rights activities and the peaceful exercise of his right to freedom of expression and association.
Mohammad Mosatafaei was released from section 209 of Evin prison in the Iranian capital, Tehran on 1 July after the payment of one billion Iranian rials (approximately US$ 102,000). Mohammad Mostafaei was arrested in Tehran on 25 June by plainclothes security officials. He was told he is accused of “conspiring against state security” and “propaganda against the system”.

After release Mostafaei wrote  a letter to head of judiciary Ayatollah Shahrudi and referred to articles of Iranian law that are being violated by arrests without court order, treatment and the interrogation techniques used in prison , trying to get confession bind folded while sitting behind prisoner , psychological pressure and abuse , keeping imprisoned without court hearing more than 48 hours, not allowing contact with family, no lawyer presentation: http://mohegh.blogfa.com/post-116.aspx
He has not mentioned himself but one can see those are from his own experiences. Authorities knew he is a well known human rights attorney and with many contacts outside Iran.
Those unknown are treated many times worse. Here the how a typical welcoming ceremony starts in the streets of Iran:

In another article Mostafaei wrote that 29 people are being executed Saturday accused of being drug dealers, breaking God’s rules of law and Corruption (ages unknown). Validity of the accusations , or the cases are unknown. 

Nazanin Afshin-jam also recently wrote: “I am really worried with the state of terror in Iran we will see a surge in executions in the coming weeks. 47% of Iranians are below the age 18.” 

According to an unconfirmed video uploaded today on youtube , during a demonstration on Gandi St. in Tehran on 20 June, a 10-yr old boy was shot and though rushed to the hospital by his father, he died en route.

There are many teenagers among the demonstrators and it is feared that some 
juveniles have also been among those who have been beaten, injured, arrested, 
imprisoned or killed.

This must end …باید پایان پذیرد

From Nazanin Afshin-Jam’s website (Human Rights Page) 

I was born in a country where I am not allowed to sing or perform.
I was born in a country where I am not allowed to wear what I want.
I was born in a country where I would be killed for my religious beliefs.
I was born in a country where I would be tortured for advocating democracy.
I was born in a country where, as a woman, my life is considered worth half of a mans.

I was born in Iran.

The year I was born, a revolution took place in my birth place. The country changed names from Iran to the “Islamic Republic of Iran”. Women were immediately forced to veil themselves. Since that time there have been gross violations of human rights. While it is one of the richest countries in the world, millions are below the poverty line and children are forced to work instead of going to school. Iran is the only country in the world that officially continues to execute children. This must end immediately.  I have started a campaign to help end executions of minors. Now I need your help.

نازنین افشین جم

من در کشوری متولد شدم که در آنجا اجازه خواندن و اجرا ندارم.
من در کشوری متولد شدم که در آنجا اجازه ندارم آنچه را که دوست دارم بپوشم.
من در کشوری متولد شدم که در آنجا به خاطر باورهای دین ام ممکن بود جانم را از دست بدهم.
من در کشوری متولد شدم که در آنجا به خاطر دفاع از آزادی شکنجه می شدم.
من در کشوری متولد شدم که در آنجا ارزش من به عنوان یک زن نصف ارزش مرد است.

من در ایران متولد شده ام.

         سالی که در ایران متولد شدم انقلابی رخ داد و نام ایران به”جمهوری اسلامی ایران تغییر یافت.” بلافاصله زنان مجبور به پوشیدن حجاب شدند. از آن لحظه به بعد حقوق بشرآشکارا نقض می شد. با اینکه ایران یکی از ثروتمندترین کشورهای جهان است ، میلیونها نفر در آنجا زیر خط فقر زندگی می کنند و بچه ها به جای رفتن به مدرسه مجبور به کار کردن هستند. ایران تنها کشور دنیا می باشد که در آن همچنان بچه ها را رسما اعدام می کنند. این مسائل باید هر چه سریعتر پایان پذیرد. من مبارزاتی را جهت خاتمه دادن به اعدام خردسالان آغاز کرده ام .اکنون نیازمند یاری شما هستم.
